Ludwig Classic Maple & Yamaha Birch Custom Absolute Review

Let me begin by admitting to my severe drum addiction. In the last 6 months I have purchased two high end drum kits (Ludwig Classic Maples & Yamaha Birch Custom Absolute) and built a third out of...

Re: Drum rug on carpet vs. platform

I am very familiar with the carpet on carpet situation. The key is to use a very thin (read very cheap) carpet, that way the loss of stability is minimal. I use the rubber backed version as it is...

Re: The biggest gear hoarders in DW

Just your standard Ludwig Red Cortex from the early 80's 6-ply era. My other set of Luddy's is an early 70's -ply in Blue Silk.

Re: The biggest gear hoarders in DW

Alright, I'm no Bermuda but I have amassed a sizable collection myself. I've got three sets in my drum room, two in storage and one at my bands rehearsal space. I rotate them frequently depending on...

Re: Which is cooler - Forks Drum Closet (Nashville) or Explorers Percussion (Kansas City)?

SGT Thump, I live in Kansas City and go to Explorer's quite frequently. Their displayed collection of cymbals and snares is not that large (I've seen a better selection in some Guitar Centers) but...

Re: Poor and Insulting Service at LI Drum Center

I've been going to the Long Island Drum Center (in it's many incarnations) since 1982 and I've never had and issue.

Re: So there's no such thing as an 11" tom...

Well here it is in the flesh, the elusive 10,11,12 combo. I bought this Tama Granstar set new in 1992. Contrary to the many cries of it "could only happen in the 80s", I believe Tama only made the...

Re: Mike Byrne (from smashing pumpkins)

I also caught that concert on Palladia and the kid killed it. I had read his feature article in MD a few months ago and remember thinking that he couldn't be any good but I was wrong. A very mature...

Re: Beautiful drum kit configurations

I like my ride in close and I don't really need (or want) a third tom for the music I play.

Re: Beautiful drum kit configurations

I am a two up one down with the toms offset to the left sorta guy. I've tried a one up, one down configuration a few times over the last few years but always wind up going back to my standard set-up....

Re: DW Performance Series

Sorry Illustrator X but I disagree. I dug up a response I posted about a year ago after someone asked for an assessment of my DW X-Shell drums. So here it is: "Let me qualify this response by saying...

Re: Converting DW rack tom to floor tom

I've done a DW floor tom conversion as I don't care for the hanging floor tom either. I placed my legs so the DW badge is visible from the outside of the kit and not necessarily the way it would have...

Re: Legit DW? tube lugs?

It's real and I've got one myself. It can't be a conversion from the turret lugs as they have two holes per lug and they are generally placed centerline. Mine was a special order from DW with diecast...

Re: I wished I never sold?

My Noble & Cooley Star Series Solid Maple Kit #10 of 23 made. Sold it back in 1993 and have been trying to get another one ever since. Just lost out on #7 of 23 on ebay last week. It sold for $4,500.

Re: So Many Snares, So Little Time

I've been using the 13" DW Aluminum as my main snare for about a year now. I very rarely use any of the 14" drums anymore. I switched to a 13" about ten years ago and usually feel uncomfortable when...

So Many Snares, So Little Time

I have probably owned about thirty snare drums over the last three decades, but here are my current seven. This is the first time in many years they've all been assembled at one place at the same...

Re: 13" snares

I'm with Joe Morris on this one and have played a 13" for over 10 years now. I own four different 13" snares and none of them are over 6.5 inches deep. I agree that it allows me to have a more...

Re: Best drumming album of all time?

I know I'm a little late to this game but here's my take on it. These are the albums that I have consistently turned to for inspiration throughout the past 30 years.

Re: DW Experts, help!

The price given on kitbuilder is 60% of the MSRP. All national chains, including Guitar Center, routinely sell their products at this "40% discount". Custom ordered DW's are generally sold at or...

Re: Les Binks

Though I love what Scott Travis is doing, Les' is definitely my favorite Priest drummer. I wore out "Unleashed in the East" trying to copy his licks when I was a teenager. My current band plays...

Re: Have You Found As You've Aged That You Prefer A Smaller Kit?

I've been playing for over 30 years now and my kit hasn't really changed much in the last two decades. In the late 80s I scaled back to basically the same 5 piece (2 up, 1 down) configuration I use...

Re: Has anyone tried the Kelly Shu?

I have been using one for the last six months and would recommend it without reservation. I wired a cable through my BDs air hole so I can leave the front head intact. I mounted an AKG D-112 on the...

Re: Clive Vs Nicko

Hey, you're not really Nicko are you? Nevertheless, I've got to disagree here.

"Perfect" is a highly subjective term and probably shouldn't be used here. Number of the Beast is without question...
